"Same here.. Never registered my toys. I've been flying RC since the 80's and don't see how this is any different. Other than it's much safer! Those old RC planes in the 80s and 90's were always on the edge of control. My drone flys itself!I…"
"Pin 15 is what is assigned to PPM in/out. So, you can either connect a cable from your transmitter accessory port to the RFD, or you can connect a receiver to the RFD. If you connect a receiver to the RFD, you basically use the transmitter as…"
"Kent, I'd be very interested in SBUS, because there are some limitations w/ PPM and Arducopter (only supports 12 channels PPM), and the little PPM/SBUS decoders usually have more functions with SBUS (like the ability to output 9-16 instead of just…"
"I have not flown with it yet. Latency is noticeable when moving a servo... similar to video lag. I'm working today, so can't give you better info at the moment. (I didn't measure it at the time I was working on it.. I was just happy I got it all…"
"Thanks. I tried various settings last night and could never get them to talk, so I guess I'll give up for now too. 900x to 900x is working great. Got the RC link figured out too :)If one of the RFD people sees this, could you let us know if these…"
"DIY will never die! It's all about the people who prefer to DIThemselves. Plus, you can push the bleeding edge while the manufactures are still working on it. And, I personally can't imagine buying a drone due to the amount I crash :). If I…"
"Yep, send an email.. I needed fast shipping, and he got back to me very quickly and took care of it.
As of a few days ago he was out of power modules in the US, and out of the GPS cables for 3dr GPS's. Everything else was able to ship immediately."
"Bump.... Anyone know?I did a few flights over the weekend and it was mostly working how I want.. The nose pointing to the ROI. Between some commands, like RTL it points the nose to the waypoint and the gimbal to the ROI. I'm still curious how I…"
Hi, I'm trying to plan a flight and am having trouble finding one bit of information. I remember reading in the past, there is a setting about telling the copter if it should point its nose towards the ROI, or simply rotate the gimbal towards the…
"HI, has anyone started doing fast auto missions w/ their racers? I've been trying to tune mine up for fast auto, and am having trouble reaching high speeds.. To start, I'm trying to increase the "speed up", and it won't go any faster than about 6…"
"I agree with your thought about not enough amperage... (I've only got about 2 years modern flight controller experience, but about 20 years electrical engineering experience). I also want to mention... I've been building some small copters lately,…"
